The Structure

This is a primitive urge to fiddle
with your neurons, networks,
whatever you have in there.
The manipulations, either side, will be
forgettable, but I wanted to imagine a puff,
a collision of dusts.
I don’t forget to wonder why
and be embarrassed.

Admission: I am quite dependent
on your patience. All of this,
the prologue, followed by
a carefully planned,
deep moment.

Here, balance: amenities:
I have a fridge; I like it.

Appearing theme: ode to brilliance,
the pressure cooker.
Does anyone have, keep, hold it?
This in evenly distributed phrases
about the same clever, dead pan thing.

A pocketful of some kind of beauty.
Throw in the moon (poor moon),
throw in somebody swallowing the moon,
that’s enough...

Years in a word pit. No gold though.
